This week on the show I discuss some last minute present ideas and suggest some vegan foods for christmas day. I also discuss why you should leave Santa soymilk instead of cows milk and why you should say no to the christmas ham! I explain why live animals (pets) do not make good christmas presents. Last, but certainly not least, I read out this recipe for sage and onion stuffing. â¢6 slices of wholemeal bread â¢half a cup/85g/3oz of vegan margarine â¢4 teaspoons of dried sage or 8 of fres...

On this week show I discuss how PETA has (once again) brought stock in animal industry to try convince them to increase welfare standards. Later I discuss the AR perspective on abortion. A lot of people try to accuse vegans of being hypocrites because they are pro life or pro choice. They argue that if vegans are against killing animals they should be against killing fetuses (or if vegans are for animal rights they should also be for a womens right to her reproductive system)...

This week on the show I talk about a sticker of approval that will soon be on pork products. SAFE was upset with this label, because it allowed sow stalls. I explain that ALL âhumaneâ stickers are misleading and SAFE should focus their efforts on promoting veganism rather then rejecting sow stalls. I also read out one of my poem called âSticker of Approvalâ and mention the following links: Emmyâs Digital Art Entry Emmyâs New Podcast Episode Emmyâs interview with Elizabeth Myleneâs newest...

On this weeks show I talk about a South Auckland man who barbequed his pet dog. There is a lot of public outcry about this man killing a dog, when in reality what he did was no different then what we do to 'farm' animals by the thousands. He could not be charged for animal cruelty because the dog was killed 'humanely'. I also talk about cheese addiction, the science behind it and some facts that will make you want to ditch cheese, even if you are mildy addicted

This week on the show I try to answer some frequently asked questions about veganism and animal rights, such as "The animal was already dead when he/she arrived at my plate", "Isn't AR just another religion?", "Doesn't it demean humans to give rights to animals?" and "Wouldn't many customs and traditions, as well as jobs, be lost if we stopped using animals?"

On this weeks show I discuss the problems of promoting vegetarianism instead of veganism. I explain why a vegetarian diet can be just as harmful as a meat based diet, because they are still eating things like dairy, eggs and honey and using products like leather, wool and silk, all of which kill just as many animals as meat. I rebutt the idea that vegetarianism is a needed stepping stone to veganism, that people âwonât go vegan overnightâ and that veganism is elitist.

I answer some FAQs, such as âDonât you step on ants?â,âArenât beekepers helping the bees, because wild bees sometimes die in the winter?â and âIf it was that bad why do...

On this weeks show I answer a common objection to veganism, "but animals don't have responsibilities, therefore they don't have rights". While this may be valid for some rights (you have to be responsible to have a right to drive), there are basic rights that all sentient beings have, regardless of whether or not they have responsibilities. Infants don't have responsibilities, yet they still have the right not to be killed, enslaved, tortured etc...

Today I dicuss why I am opposed to violence in the animal rights movement. Many pro-violence people claim they are going after the âanimal exploitersâ. I ask the question, who is an animal exploiter? How is the factory farmer any worse then the person who consumes factory farmed products? I also talk about why violence wonât end violence, why violence has no cultural significance, why property damage may be counted as violence and why Open Rescue is certainly not violence.
